That bumper look is hard to overcome for me from pictures alone at this point and the rear fake vents is just a non-starter cheap Kia look to me.
the non Turbos have the nicer and cleaner look gotten rid of the plastic "tears" below the head lights...

I always loved the tears on the car - sad to see them changed.

As to the Kia design comment, perhaps Chevy is more appropriate, as the Kia/Hyundai guys have been killing it on design lately.

I think Kia and also HyundaI with the Ioniq 5 have been doing a great job :rock:

I think we have a few over-reactions here. The newer non-turbo design is quite clean, albeit it does lose something. It's not exactly a disaster :CWL: and the turbo bumper cut-outs are a little jarring to my eyes, but in the video's (and not pictures), don't spoil the overall look of the car too much.

I am interested to see the new cars IRL and I'll be further interested to see what else Porsche do with their range of cars

Yeah, I'll be keeping my 2021 for a while yet, but a lot of the changes are what I would have hoped to see, so quite happy overall. I am very curious if they will keep marketing the HD matrix headlight stuff since none of the VAG group cars truly enable those in the US still.

My wife's 2023 Audi eTron for example has the highest-end lights they make (the ones that are basically movie projectors like these HD matrix ones) and they are 100% disabled except for startup animations. Really disappointing. I've seen claims about how the US regulations require different beam angles, but with mutli-pixel lights like this, programming a new pattern should be trivial.

Just found out the new mission e wheels from MyPorsche app.

While the new Mission E’s in the configurator don’t look exactly like these, I like the Gen 1 (less efficient) Mission E wheel more… along with the tear drop vents.

As someone else mentioned, FOD for increased launch control would be fun for Gen 1 owners; although, not sure how it’d be enabled without the button in the sport chrono wheel. Maybe every time I hit the diamond on my steering wheel for next music track, I also get increased HP! 😆
